Hello! Can you believe it’s the middle of July already? We sure can’t. But the corn is past knee-high so it must be true.

Thank you to everyone for continuing to follow safe social distancing and mask wearing. We are so looking forward to when we can see all of your smiles again.

Don’t forget the first week of blueberry deliveries is this week. Your flats will be labeled with your name, so please double check you have yours, and make sure if you ordered more than one to pick them all up. The berries are plump and delicious, we had to make sure!

If you haven’t sent in your check for your berries, please do so this week. Those of you who are paying by card, we will be processing those payments this week.

If you need us to check how many you ordered, and for which week, or you need to make a card payment by phone, please give us a call at the farm, 541-935-1920.

This week’s new items!

GREEN ONIONS Green Onions, also known as Scallions, should be stored unwashed and wrapped loosely in a plastic bag. Put them in the refrigerator, where they will keep for a week. To keep green onions longer, chop off about three-quarters of the tender, green tips: the end closest to the root is less perishable.

You can eat the entire Green Onion. Use them chopped as a garnish, or use as a substitute for chives. Excellent in soups and stews, especially if added late in cooking. Grill, bake, broil, or stir-fry with a little oil to concentrate their sweetness and flavor.

WHAT WE’RE MAKING

This one is worth the trouble, and the trip to market to grab some tomatoes.

Tomato, Corn and Zucchini Galette

If you haven’t tried these summer staples together it’s time!IMG_2015_06_06_05065-cropped1

Strawberry Basil Avocado Toast

How to get your kids to eat their veggies: Fry them! These are a delicious treat for kids of all ages.

Mustikkapiiras (or Blueberry Yogurt Pie)

This is an old favorite from the Moosewood Cookbook collection. I make it every year when the blueberries are fresh, and then again in the winter, using the frozen blueberries saved for a special winter treat. It never disappoints!

We appreciate the feedback on how much you are enjoying your food and we love to see the photos of your creations.

Here’s to good eating this week!

  1. Hi again. Sorry to ask this, is it too late to cancel our blueberries which we ordered for the week of July 20?

    Thanks, Teresa Kennedy
